Breathe at a full running pace without strain.
Can see the ground in front of you.
Take off head strap and the unit drops to your chest, doesn't strangle.
Don't have to replace expensive integrated HEPA cans, just replace what's used up.
Great pre-filter material.
Very light in weight.
Can stack two chemical cans.
Test disk is also storage seal for open cans!
Product FeaturesHigh Quality, Easy to use, Durable/Performs well, little to no strain to use.

Moisture proof respirator

I sweat profusely and need to use a respirator when working around pollins. The respirator that I have now clogs up from sweat and I can't breath at all. Can you put me on to a respirator that works well for pollens and doesn't clog up with sweat? Thank you

I can't really endorse a specific brand but in my experience dealing with sweat in the mask is much like dealing with long hair in your face, you flick your head and give a good blow. Do this with your head tipped so that the sweat in the mask gets blown out the waste vent(s).

If you're using simple pressed-felt-on-face masks, simply stop using them. They're primarily to stop direct large particulate aspiration and aren't very effective against pollens. They aren't very effective at letting air through either and for the most part tend to allow a large amount of bypass.

Several brands of silicone masks carry simple HEPA-only cartridges, it would be worth your time to investigate them.

best dust for protection from chemical dust

What kind of environment and what kind of chemical dust?
There are many standards for safety and depending on what chemical you're worried about you may be looking at buying a head-covering full face mask respirator with body suit.

Generally there will be guidelines available in the instructional or MSDS material associated with the chemical(s) you are working with.

What is the best respirator for rodent nests/droppings removal?

As with most questions about dealing with particulates, you want a HEPA filter with one or two layers of pre-filter material.

In the specific case of cleaning up rodent droppings, if you do it a lot you'll probably want a full face mask respirator to keep any debris and dust out of your eyes as well.

whats the best mask for dust and smoke

I have COPD. and spend lots of time in a dusty environment, and around camp fires?
You want a mask with HEPA filtration and a pre-filter cover. Much of what is bothering you will be caught by one - or two stacked - pre filter layers and the rest taken out by the HEPA. Read around to see which masks have the largest surface area available and watch for the weight of the gear. After a few hours some masks can really get you down and if you're moving around cross country a mask that bounces off is near to useless.
